We are using the latest version of sharepoint.
samba-tool domain level show :
Domain and forest function level for domain 'DC=removed,DC=com'
Forest function level: (Windows) 2008 R2
Domain function level: (Windows) 2008 R2
Lowest function level of a DC: (Windows) 2008 R2
I did not have to change the revision attributes by hand.
I think the MSAD2K3 was an upgrade from MSAD2K.
We did not do anything with partition. So everything has been setup by default.
I'm going to try to join another samba 4.7.5 DC and switch all the fsmo roles.
If needed, I'll need assistance to "recreate a Samba 4.7 domain with same SID by piping in all the objects".
Thanks for your inputs, lets see how it goes with another samba 4.7 dc.

since you have issues with your domain, perhaps fixing you domain would
fix the sharepoint compatibility. What version of sharepoint are you
trying to integrate?

What do you get when you try a "samba-tool domain level show"? Did you
had to change the revision attribute by hand because it was not changed
during "samba-tool domain level raise"?
Your MSAD2k3, was it and upgrade from a MSAD2k? The forest DNS zone was
in its own partition or not before the switch to Samba-AD?

Joining a win2k8r2 to a samba 4.7 should go without any issue. You have
some corrupted entries somewhere (which may actually have been copied
over from your MSAD2k3).
Have you tried to join a secondary DC, and demote the original one? DC
replication does not sync all the DIT tree, and if your corrupted stuff
is not to be sync'ed, then it may help. Be sure to switch all the FSMO
role in between.
And if the issue is not yet resolved, then the last resort thing is to
recreate a Samba 4.7 domain with same SID by piping in all the objects.
